CBD is a great supplement for runners

Athletes, especially endurance athletes, have to deal with their bodies constantly being inflamed. Ibuprofen can only do so much though, and long term use risks the damage of the liver. Nature’s perfect alternative is CBD oil.

CBD is non-psychoactive, and comes from the hemp plant…the low (almost none) THC version of the cannabis plant. It contains less than .3% THC, but still contains enormous amounts of medicinal and therapeutic benefits.

The biggest advantage of CBD for athletes is as an anti-inflammatory. CBD can help your muscles heal and recover faster. Additionally CBD can help you sleep better, which also leads to better rest and improved recovery times.

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has even recently removed CBD from it’s banned substance list. Making it an effective and safe anti-inflammatory aid for athletes of all skill levels, even elites.

I (Caleb Simpson, AKA Hemp Daddy) have used CBD oil to help reduce inflammation, reduce pain, and heal from a chronic foot problem. As an ultra runner, I’m constantly struggling with injury. CBD has helped me to keep doing what I love to do, and why I created a CBD for runners.

CBD helps reduce pain by interacting with serotonin and vanilloid receptors in the brain, which are responsible for the perception of pain. CBD is even safe to use in competition, as ibuprofen is not typically deemed safe due to increased risk of hypothermia.

In addition to its anti-inflammatory and pain reducing benefits, CBD can benefit athletes by reducing stress, which can help improve mindset before a big race.
